Wonderful piece of Western Americana this Sawbuck Pack Saddle. This was a great necessity in the 1800 as the pioneers crossed the Badlands heading West. The Pack Saddle was used to carry gear and supplies on the backs of a mules or horse’s, the wooden rack would be strapped on the back of the animal and supplies would be strapped to the rack. The saddle is made of hand-hewn red oak and riveted together with steel rivets, made to last a long time.
The saddle was found in Central California in the 1940s. This pack saddle could have easily been used during the California Gold Rush or even earlier as Lewis and Clark explored the great north west.
